The Speaker Sisterhood to Hold Open Houses Throughout April
PIONEER VALLEY — The Speaker Sisterhood, a network of public speaking clubs for women, is holding a company-wide, month-long, open-house celebration for its network of 24 clubs in April. The goal of the clubs is to provide a community to women who want to increase confidence, boost public-speaking skills, have fun, and maybe even change the world.
The Pioneer Valley network of Speaker Sisterhood clubs will hold open houses on the following dates. Amherst on Thursday, April 11, 7-9 p.m.; Florence on Wednesday, April 10, 3-5 p.m.; Holyoke on Friday, April 26, 9:30-11:30 a.m.; Northampton #1 on Thursday, April 18, 6-8 p.m.; and Northampton #2 on Monday, April 22, 6-8 p.m.
The two-hour open houses will offer an overview of what club meetings entail, how to join, and what members can expect to gain. Guests will hear experiences from current members and can also volunteer to give a two-minute speech to practice public speaking and get a glimpse of the powerful experience each meeting offers.
“Each Speaker Sisterhood club isn’t just a place to practice speaking in front of a group, it’s a tribe of like-minded women who are supporting and empowering each other to follow their dreams by building confidence in their voice,” said Angela Lussier, founder and CEO of the Speaker Sisterhood, which is based in Holyoke.
Each club experience offers a year-long curriculum that not only helps members become better public speakers, but also takes them on a self-discovery adventure. The Speaker Sisterhood’s curriculum, “The Secret Life of Speaking Up,” is focused on helping women discover, awaken, and create their voice through the art of public speaking.
